Best Home Run Picks for Thursday, April 14

  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+320)
  • Joey Gallo (+330)
  • Bobby Witt Jr. (+475)
  • Nathaniel Lowe (+600)

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+320) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees

I’m not going to go into some crazy breakdown for this, as Vlad Guerrero Jr. simply is on fire to start the season, hitting .391 and posting a three-homer game last night against the New York Yankees. He gets another shot to be a Yankee killer, something he has done well in his career, on Thursday.

Guerrero has hit an insane 11 homers in 51 career games against the Yanks. The only team he has more homers against is the Baltimore Orioles. I’ll back the hottest bat in baseball to stay that way tonight. -- Peter Dewey

Joey Gallo (+330) - Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees

Much like yesterday's winner (finally on the board) in Max Muncy of the Dodgers, I'm following the MLB Statcast numbers to determine players smoking the baseball in the early portion of the season.

Enter Joey Gallo of the Yankees, who is only one of two players averaging more than 100 mph off the bat this season with Willson Contreras of the Chicago Cubs.

Furthermore, Gallo is a dead-pull hitter and gets Kevin Gausman and the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium with the wind blowing out to right field at 13-15 mph. Granted, Gallo could hit a ball out of Yankee Stadium just by looking at a baseball, so adding extra wind in his general hitting direction only helps the case. -- Ben Heisler

Bobby Witt Jr. (+475) - Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals

Witt Jr. came into this season with a lot of hype and is still expected to be the Rookie of the Year. Yet, he’s struggled heavily in his first couple of starts. He’s 2-for-20, has 3 RBI and hasn’t been able to find his footing. Until tonight.

Witt Jr. will knock one out the park against Casey Mize. In his last start, Mize gave up seven hits and a homer. Mize allowed 24 homers last season.

Witt should snap out of his slump sometime and a home game against a struggling pitcher provides a great opportunity to do so. -- Donnavan Smoot

Nathaniel Lowe (+600) - Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers

Lowe hit 18 dingers last season and plays in the hitter friendly Globe Life Park. His numbers are similar to his typical hard hitting self but he hasn't went deep yet so I'll bank on some positive regression against Shohei Ohtani (yup) considering Ohtani pitches to an ERA of 5.40 away from home during his career with the Angels.

This is a big number for a game that I think is prime for more runs than expected so I'll take a shot on Lowe getting a hold of one. -- Reed Wallach
